Punxsutawny Phil Strikes Again

Everyone's favorite groundhog predicted six more weeks of winter this morning, but spring planting for Casey Trees still starts March 3 at the National Zoo with our free Tree Planting Workshop. Advance registration is required; space is limited. All other spring Community Tree Planting events will be made available to volunteers starting next week.

Did you know? A groundhog and a woodchuck are the same thing, and the name woodchuck has absolutely nothing to do with wood or chucking, but is actually a mangled version of the Native American name, otchek.
